a lot of time for what?

xfce's websites are currently easy to maintain - they don't take much time at all.
they're nicely self-contained parts which can be migrated separately and moved
around in case the need exists (like when we moved two weeks ago).

moving to drupal or any other cms would mean that the entire site needs to rebuild
from zero up. all the content needs to be moved, imported / converted and all.

In my experience with many CMS's out there (including drupal) it's never worth
doing this conversion unless you're willing to sacrifice all the flexibility that
we have right now and burn all your time.

so frankly, I oppose this idea strongly,
